AUDITORS' CERTIFICATE

We, the undersigned Auditors for the Town of 
Ossipee, hereby certify that we have audited the ac-

brary Trustees, Municipal Court, and find them correct

COMMUNITY HOUSE 

Following the Community House fire an insurance 
adjustment was made of two thousand two hundred 
and seventy-two dollars and eighty cents ($2272.80) 

After much discussion as to the best means of 
repairing the house so as to give the maximum use 
to the town and to create an especially attractive 
apartment so as to ensure steady income to the town, 
contracts were let and the work executed. 

$1593.13 was paid to John G. Thompson for ma- 
terial and labor. Of the material, the Carroll County 
Land and Lumber Co. furnished |413.66 and the Huck- 
ins Lumber Co. $152.06. $105 was paid to Neal Har- 
den for re-wiring and $348 to Raymond Fall for 
painting and papering. $60 was paid to Arthur 
Gleason for plumbing work; $22.50 to Sanborn 
McDuffee Co. of Rochester for new window shades 
and $107.50 to the Palmer Plumbing and Supply for 
plumbing materials. This means that a total sum 
of $2236.13 was expended. A small balance is due 
to the Palmer Plumbing and Supply Co. which must 
be adjusted. 

As the House has been re-built, the tenant oc- 
cupies the first floor, leaving the second floor rooms 
entirely available for such responsible town organ- 
izations which may wish to use them. The large 
kitchen has been divided into two kitchens, one occu- 
pied by the tenant and the other by the Ossipee Lake 
Grange. The Grange has furnished their kitchen so 
that it is a very real credit to this group. The electric 
circuits have been re-run so that the tenant pays his 
own light bill and the Trustees the light bill for the 
rest of the house. Rent is set at thirteen dollars per 
month and has been paid regularly. 

No fee has been paid to the architect, Richard 0. 
Palmer for his work, nor to myself, for the work in- 
volved in the re-building of the house. I feel that both

Mr. Palmer and myself are entitled to modest FemiiB- 
eration for time expended.

1939— ANNUAL REPORTS— 1940 89 

REPORT OF THE OSSIPEE SPORTS DEVELOP- 
MENT ASSOCIATION 

The Ossipee Sports Development Association Inc., 
is pleased herein to issue to the Town of Ossipee a re- 
port on the financial condition of the Organization. 
This report includes all items of expense and income 
from December 15, 1939 to February 15, 1940. 

The Association wishes to point out that although 
skiing conditions have been far from satisfactory, 
that we have been able to reduce our indebtedness by 
$570.11. Most of this sum was raised by public sub- 
scription through the help and cooperation of the 
Ossipee Rotary Club and the members of the Organi- 
zation itself; and, as a result, this amount is a non- 
recurring income which will, in other years, have to 
be made up by profits derived from the operations of 
the Tow itself. There is a possible chance, if snow 
conditions improve and with the aid of a late Spring, 
that the remaining indebtedness of $227.88 might be 
entirely cleared. 

The Ski Slope has been highly praised by the ma- 
jority of users, with the one complaint that the bot- 
tom of the slope should be cleared of the remaining 
rocks and stumps, thus eliminating the bottleneck 
that now crowds the downcoming skiers into a small 
area creating a serious hazard. This, and the prob- 
lem of suitable sanitary facilities, make a situation 
that should be considered by all who are concerned 
with the success and future development in publi- 
cising the Town of Ossipee for Winter Sports. 

At this time the Ossipee Sports Development 
Association Inc., wishes to express its appreciation to 
the Selectmen, the townspeople, the Rotary Club and 
personally to L. 0. Moulton, Kendrick Welles Diller, 
and Marguerite Fletcher for their support and aid. 
It is necessary to work in the same manner, for future

already been accomplished.

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT 



'It costs from $2000 to $2500 to educate a farm 
child up to the age of fifteen. The migration of farm 
youth to the city is, therefore, a costly contribution by 
rural families to city life. The United States Depart- 
ment of Agriculture estimates that the migration from 
farm to city from 1920 to 1929 represented a contribu- 
tion of fourteen billion dollars." 

If this migration is still going on, wouldn't it be 
well to find jobs for our boys and girls and keep them 
at home? The Placement Committee arranged last 
summer to help high school graduates and this plan 
should have the support of every citizen of Ossipee. 
Some of our graduates have found it possible to go on 
to higher institutions of learning where they are 
making good. More could have gone if help could 
have been provided. Some have jobs but should be 
finding ways to work up to higher positions. 

The unemployment situation in the country is 
tragic. Allegedly there are 10,000,000 unemployed, 
4,000,000 being young persons between sixteen and 
twenty-four years of age. Disappointed youth has the 
greatest right to complain. Free government is on 
trial today in the opportunity and faith in the future 
that it offers youth. Unemployed youth is the soil on 
which dictatorships grow to power. 

It would be very much to the point to introduce 
Agriculture or some form of advanced Mechanic Arts 
for the ppupils of Ossipee High School. It is much to 
be regretted that the high school building was not 
enlarged, providing space for more activities of a 
practical nature. 

Improvements 

Water Village schoolhouse has been moved to a 
new and delightful location, with ample playground 
and much better light. Septic toilets were installed 



100 1939— ANNUAL REPORTS— 1940 

and the heater repaired. A well should be driven to 
furnish water and electric lights should be installed 
as soon as possible. A porch should also be built over 
the door and the lawn graded and beautified. 

It is recommended that a new shed be built at 
West Ossipee. The old one is in bad condition and 
in danger of fajling. 

Shingling should be completed at the Center, an 
oil burner installed, the athletic field completed and the 
lawn properly graded and beautified. A fan should 
also be installed to provide better controlled ventila- 
tion. 

High School 

We are proud to believe that our high school is 
having its best year. The attendance is better and 
the scholarship is gradually improving. There are 
seven graduates studying in college or normal school: 
Patricia Eldredge, Dorothy Wormstead, Elizabeth 
Loring, Marion Meserve, Plymouth Teachers' College; 
Dorothy Hill, Westbrook Junior College ; Virginia Hill, 
University of N. H., 1943; Edna Lord, Keene Teachers' 
College, 1943. 

Our successful headmaster, John H. Frye, is 
ably assisted by Phil A. Bennett and Barbara E. Pattee. 
Especially interesting this year are the club and 
athletic activities, teaching boys and girls how to be 
strong citizens. The orchestra and Glee Club keep 
music alive and interesting. 

Health Work 

Good work has been done by our faithful nurse, 
Mrs. Marion Davis. Statistics are to be found in the 
nurse's report. Special attention has been given to 
posture in standing and sitting, a matter which often 
makes the difference between health and sickness. A 
special motion picture reel was secured and used by 
the teachers to supplement oral instruction. Posture 
is very essential in personality which plays such an 



1939— ANNUAL REPORTS— 1940 101 

important part in life's success. 

Attendance 

For the year ending June 30, 1939 we had an 
average attendance of 265, an average membership 
of 281 and a percent of 94. 

Schools having a percent of 95 or over are as 
follows : 

West Ossipee 98.12% Granite 96.08% 

Center Primary 95.78% Center Intermediate 95.63% 

Roll of Perfect Attendance 
High School: Irene Holbrook, Jean Kirkwood, Barbara 

Pearson. 
Grammar School: Ellsworth Philbrick, Henry Vigue. 
Intermediate School: Dwight Knox, Warren Philbrick. 
Primary School: Lloyd Wilkins, Forrest MacDonald. 
West Ossipee: Janet Eldridge, Avonne Knox, Gertrude 

Hartford. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the school board, 
teachers, pupils and citizens for helpful support and 
cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

F. W. JACKSON 
February 1940 Superintendent of Schools
